(Playa Sound SF202).
A kind of "Black Atlantic" musical mixture is here well represented with this album from Bonga (Angola), Tiao Tocha Perazzo (Brazil) and Jo Maka (Guinea). Slaves from Benin, Angola and Congo were transplanted in brasilian Nordeste. From these african roots, afro-brazilian generations developed both sacred music (candomble) and popular music (samba). This beautiful album is a nice way to meet up again musically.
